Alex disagreed with the rating and said:
I disagree with the rating that this only passes one of the three tenets of the Bechdel test, as we do have evidence that Jo and Jenny Miller have multiple conversations with each other. It should pass two of three, as we cannot verify what they talk about during either of the conversations. The first is when Jo references that she has spoken over the phone to Jenny Miller, and the second is at 1:05.18 we can see Jo and Jenny talking in the background of the shot, though we cannot hear their conversation. But it is clear they are having a conversation, so this passes two of the three parts of the Bechdel test.
